Red Tape Not Free Market to Blame for Rising Costs?

On this week’s episode of Medicine on Call with Dr. Elaina George of Peachtree Wellness Center in Atlanta, welcomes  Dr Craig Wax Founder of Independent Physicians for Patient Independence joins me to discuss the inner workings that drive the high costs of the our health care system. Why is our healthcare system broken – it’s not because of capitalism and the fee market.

Hegelian Dialectic = More government medicine to “fix” prior government failure of ObamaCare that was itself supposed to “fix” previous government health care intervention. 

As Democrat candidates seeking their party’s nomination for president, propose more government will fix the last government health care debacle of ObamaCare via a socialist “single-payer” scheme known as Medicaid for All it is now more important than ever the truth of ever-high health care costs is exposed so doctors and patients may make the best decisions for their future care, which if quality, cost, and timeliness is important, will require folks to peacefully nullify and go around the one-size-fits all garbage offered by the federal government.
